Blogs have a rep for being simply places for disgruntled schmucks to vent. This is my contribution to that rep.
There’s a store across the street from my house. They sell new and used sporting equipment to kids and anyone else who wants it.
They don’t have a parking lot, so people park on the street. At some point in the past, that annoyed someone who owned my house, so they got the city to put up a sign saying No Parking At Any Time on our side of the street.
As far as I can tell, people drive from all over town to park in front of that sign.
